Pillow(s) of the week – *New* Google+ and Facebook


This weeks Pillow(s) of the Week are the upcoming Google+ and Facebook pillows that I’ll be updating in the Craftsquatch store soon. There’s been a whole lot of simplification of logos going around lately; reducing formerly multi-coloured/faceted designs down to simple white logos on coloured backgrounds (check out Feedly and Grubhub for instance). Not that we’re complaining; a simplified logo means a cleaner designer and greater versatility. Which is something we can get behind both as crafters and designers :)

Keep checking back in the store for these pillows updated as well a few new items!

Pillow of the Week – grubHub

grubcollageOm nom nom! After a long day of sewing pillows in our home-studio, grubHub is our favorite place to order food from the couch, which is where we’ve inevitably collapsed to watch our favorite science fiction series’ (what are your favorite science fiction series’?!). In a city like Chicago, grubHub is like teleporting around the globe with your taste buds. Thai, Indian, and Mediterranean are the foods we love the most! Mmm, this Pillow of the Week makes us salivate like Pavlov’s dog. Droooooool. <3 :)

Pillow of the Week – feedly

feedlyRaise your hand if you’ve recently become very familiar with this icon (raises hand). Much to our initial chagrin over at Craftsquatch, we chose feedly as our new RSS Reader after the painful death of Google Reader. We’ve quickly come realize that feedly is fantastic, particularly as an Android app. So, maybe there’s a slight learning curve for some of us (wink wink), but the interface is really an improvement once you’ve accepted the loss of Google Reader. Too soon? RIP Google Reader. <3 :)

A Beautiful Pillow Plug

A Beautiful Mess Instagram

Craftsquatch received an awesome plug from the ladies of A Beautiful Mess on their Instagram page yesterday! That’s the Pillow of the Week we created of their adorable photo app icon. Check out the A Beautiful Mess app in the iTunes app store! :) <3

Pillow of the Week – WordPress

ImageCraftsquatch created this week’s pillow to celebrate the beginning of our relationship with WordPress (we imagine it will be a long and loving one, too). This relationship is not complicated. In fact, Justin says an inverse relationship exists between the ease of using WordPress as a blogger and creating this pillow! It was a tricky one, but we made it through, just for you! Thank you, WordPress! <3 :)


Pillow of the Week – A Beautiful Pillow

ImageCraftsquatch created this week’s pillow to pay homage to the A Beautiful Mess app, a photo editing app created by Elsie and Emma of the craft and lifestyle blog A Beautiful Mess. This playful app offers new filters, doodles, and fonts that allow you to write phrases on the pictures you share! While it’s only available for iPhone right now, ABM received enough well-deserved fan fare (it made #1 in the iTunes paid app store) that they are in the process of developing the app for Android. We’re Android-users here at Craftsquatch and can’t wait to get the app for our phones! Our good friend Cari, and fellow ABM follower, helped us edit the photos below so that you could see with your own eyeballs some of the fun things you do with the app! If you want to know more, check out this post over on the ABM blog! <3 :)
